Iximche First Guatemala Capital City
Why take this tour?
Iximche is a pre-Columbian Mesoamerican archaeological site in the western highlands of Guatemala. Being the capital of the late postclassic Kaqchikel Maya kingdom from 1470 until its abandonment in 1524, the architecture of this site – also a national park – includes a number of pyramid-temples, palaces and two Mesoamerican ballcourts. Walk in the path of history and join us on a full-day tour to visit Iximche Guatemala! On this tour, you will be guided through the place where Pedro de Alvarado established the country’s first capital city, and witness the Mayans rituals and ceremonies held by locals. Lunch will be at a nice restaurant in Tecpan, before heading back to Antigua or Guatemala City.
